You already know that the golfing, TV watching, Twitter-obsessed U.S. president is on vacation, but you might not have known that Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is on vacation, too.

Luckily for you, we just got our hands on Putin’s vacay photos, and they’re full of spymaster-in-the-Siberian-tundra cheesecake.

In photos released by the Kremlin on Saturday, Putin is shown going on a fishing trip with a few friends.

The first photo (above) is innocent enough, showing the Russian leader steering a boat through the Siberian waters. And look at all those layers. Since it’s not that cold in the Republic of Tuva (where the fishing trip occurred) this time of year, things probably got steamy pretty fast.

Time to drop a few layers.


The guy basking semi-nude in the Siberian sun next to Putin is Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. He’s not as fit as the 64-year-old Putin, but he’s just as shameless in showing off his own, plump man meat for the world to see.

And later, because Putin’s alpha male status can’t be confirmed just by his shirtlessness, he also offers us a photo of a fish he caught. Because, you know, macho nature kill and all.


This isn’t the first time Putin has gone the extra mile to make sure the world knows he’s still fit and confident enough to show off his spy dad bod.

Images of Putin’s ridiculous displays of his torso are so well known that he even earned himself a regular Saturday Night Live character (played by Beck Bennett) who regularly appears next to Alec Baldwin’s version of Trump.

Aside from reminding us that Putin is just lacking in self-awareness as America’s own top political peacock, he also just guaranteed that SNL will continue to need the services of Beck in all his hilariously shirtless glory.
